FAST Fall Finale Set For October 28-29



The Foundation for the Advancement and Support of the Tennessee Walking Show Horse (FAST) will host its Fall Finale on October 28-29, 2011.  The new two-day horse show will be held at the Williamson County Agricultural Exposition Park in Franklin, Tenn.  FAST put on the 2nd Annual FAST SHOWCASE during the 4th of July in Shelbyville, Tenn. at the Calsonic arena.

The two-day Fall Finale will feature Riders’ Cup classes and count as double-points as well as double-points in all industry high point awards.  The show will have a three-judge panel and include generous paybacks and high quality awards.

“In the past, Williamson County hosted up to five industry horse shows and today has none.  FAST is excited to bring an event back to Williamson County to feature the Tennessee Walking Show Horse and hopefully other shows will come back to Franklin,” said FAST President Mike Inman.

Just as is the case with the SHOWCASE parking and admission will be free and FAST board member David Landrum has negotiated very affordable deals on stalls that include a three-day stall rental for those training barns traveling to Franklin for the show.  More information on area attractions and host hotels will be coming in the near future.

The Williamson County Ag Expo Park features an indoor arena and covered warm-up arena along with seating for over 4,000.  The park also has permanent stalls and RV hookups on site.

FAST is a 501 (c)3 organization that’s mission is to promote and preserve the Tennessee Walking Show Horse.  All donations are tax deductible and are put to immediate use in the industry.  For more information or to make a donation visit FAST online at www.FASTWalkingShowHorse.org.
